Synthdetect shortlisted for industry innovation awards

Winners will be announced at the JNA Awards ceremony on 16 September during the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair

The International Institute of Diamond Grading & Research (IIDGR), part of De Beers Group, has announced Synthdetect, has been shortlisted as a finalist for Industry Innovation of the Year in this year’s JNA Awards.

Synthdetect, launched last year, is the first synthetic diamond screening device to simultaneously test multiple stones in set jewellery and has the industry’s lowest referral rate at around 0.05%.

IIDGR claims the device increases efficiency and reduces costs for retailers and manufacturers when ensuring they do not buy any undisclosed synthetic diamonds.

Jonathan Kendall, president of IIDGR, said: “We’re delighted that synthdetect has been shortlisted in this year’s JNA Awards. Synthdetect was developed using IIDGR’s proprietary technology and it’s wonderful to see our scientists recognised for their innovation through this nomination.

“We are very proud of this device’s pioneering approach to screening for synthetic diamond content and continue to receive excellent feedback from our customers.”

The awards shortlisting process involved three rounds, including a visit by the judges to IIDGR’s lab in Surat, India, for a demonstration of synthdetect in action. Winners will be announced at the JNA Awards ceremony on 16 September during the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair.
